    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;Measuring and characterizing web page performance is a challenging task.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;When it comes to the mobile world, the highly varying technology characteristics coupled with the opaque network configuration make it even more difficult.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Aiming at reproducibility, we present a large scale measurements study of web page performance collected in eleven commercial mobile networks spanning four countries.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We build a dataset of nearly two million web browsing sessions to we shed light on the impact of different web protocols, browsers, and mobile technologies on the web performance.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We find that the impact of mobile broadband access is sizeable.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For example, the median page load time using mobile broadband increases by a third compared to wired access.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Mobility clearly stresses the system, with handover causing the most evident performance penalties.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Contrariwise, our measurements show that the adoption of HTTP/2 and QUIC has practically negligible impact.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Our work highlights the importance of large-scale measurements.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Even with our controlled setup, the complexity of the mobile web ecosystem is challenging to untangle.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For this, we are releasing the dataset as open data for validation and further research.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We also release together with the datasets we collected the scripts we use to produce the analysis we present in the paper. Please use plot_all.sh script to generate the plots in the paper, using the separate scripts from the &amp;quot;scripts&amp;quot; archive.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;
